Fun ski trip

The hotel is starting much needed renovation this coming summer. The staff made up for some of the inconvenience of: cold air blowing through the old windows and thermostat not working. Room stayed cool for a winter stay. Staff was very helpful with directions and shopping in the immediate area.

Valentine's

Everything was fine but the hair dryer was missing. Call front desk to verify that one should be in the room and we were told yes and they would send one up. A young lady showed up about 45 minutes later and asked if we were in need of a hair dryer. I responded yes and she said she would go get one , I told to forget it.

Great place, great price

It's rare that I'll give a hotel a five-star rating in every category but I really can't fault the value for money and pleasant experience of this comfortable and friendly hotel in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, on a recent business trip. For a three-star hotel I thought the quality of the bed and the room was high, it was quiet, which I really appreciate - at least on the back side (with mountain view to boot!) and all those bonus features of free parking, free WiFi in the room, microwave and fridge were very convenient and a huge saving. The front-desk staff was friendly in a down-to-earth way I appreciate and I wish I'd had time to try out the diner attached to the hotel. I'd definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a somewhere that's mid-level but feels like mid-level-plus at great value. It was winter, so pool closed. Too busy/lazy to try the small gym!

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Conveniently located in relation to the two key interstate freeways out of town and to the airport.

weekend getaway

The hotel was clean. Tried to call the front desk a few times and didn't get any answer. The breakfast buffet wasn't good for the money.

2 day getaway

Booked the hotel for a 2 day getaway with my girlfriend, looked into getting room service and didn't see it as an option. Otherwise the hotel is a great value and I would book again for sure!
